And for those travel thrill seeking music fans, don’t miss autumn festival news from across the globe. That’s Wednesday on BTR with DJRePete!
BTR inches you closer to your holiday weekend with DJRePete who’s got a fresh dose of music to breakthru including electronica crossover from the Mood Rings, folk with Cheyenne Mize, and a set with a beat from the likes of Austra. Also, Mavis Staples chimes in with a blues touch, an exclusive track from Serious Business on BTR, and several summer festivals to highlight on both sides of “the pond.” Plus, in continuing the 8 year celebration of BreakThru Radio, tune in for a throwback set spotlighting yester-year on BTR. That about sums up your Wednesday with DJRePete and BTR!
DJRePete starts your Wednesday soundtrack with new alternative from the Treetop Flyers and Teen. Plus, a set exclusively comprised of bands playing this weekend’s Governors Ball on Randall’s Island. Also tune in for a little known Lana Del Rey remix, a b-side by CHVRCHES, and a blues set that’s sure to please featuring Hazmat Modine—appropriate, as we approach this weekend’s Chicago Blues Festival in Millennium Park. Some decent ear candy, eh? Just 90 minutes with DJRePete on BTR!
It's Craft Week here on BTR, and craft + fashion can only mean one thing: DIY project time! I'm joined this week by Jenni Radosevich, editorial staff member at InStyle, and creative mastermind behind the popular fashion project blog I Spy DIY. From make-it-yourself crystal necklaces to the latest nail art trends, sprucing up a pair of shoes, or adding a unique look to that Ikea lamp, Jenni's tutorials have you covered. Plus, she's got a ton of great inspiration posts that keep you up-to-date on all the latest styles! On today's show, Jenni will talk about the start of I Spy DIY, how *not* learning to sew made her who she is today, a few of her favorite style icons, and her top shops for craft supplies. All that, plus a set of brand new music from artists Mikal Cronin, Wampires, and Bibio, along with a set dedicated to the stylistically diverse roster of Toronto's record label Arts & Crafts. Grab that glue gun, and get ready to bedazzle here on BTR with Sew & Tell!
Bird Courage appeared on BTR Live Studio back when they were the duo of Sam Saffery and Erik Meier and accustomed to playing primarily in subway stations around Brooklyn. Since then, they’ve been making a name for themselves above ground, building a joyful ruckus with just three musicians -- thanks to the addition of percussionist, Sean McMahon -- and acoustic instruments. It's a testament to their dynamic, highly-accessible songwriting that the music works in almost any situation, and their steadily-growing fanbase seems happy to follow right along, going so far as to successfully crowdfund their next album, Māia Manu, via Kickstarter in just 4 weeks. For this episode of BTR Hear & There, we found the trio playing in the entryway to Kavé Espresso Bar in their neighborhood of Bushwick.
We're deep into May and warm weather, and we've got the great tunes on the show today to celebrate that. We're playing tracks from Prince Rama and Screaming Females, whom BTR is featuring this week on Live Studio and Get in the Van, respectively. Make sure to check those out, along with BTR on Facebook and Twitter. And stay tuned for new tracks from She & Him, The Child of Lov, and Har Mar Superstar!
